Man City playmaker Bernardo Silva has said that Man City’s focus is on the Premier League as tough matches await the team after claiming the FIFA Club World Cup trophy.

Pep Guardiola’s side were officially crowned the best team in the world following a 4-0 win over Fluminense in Saudi Arabia last Friday.

However, the Portugal international insists that his teammates have their attention on domestic matters, with Premier League games away at Everton on Wednesday and at home to Sheffield United next Saturday to come before closing the 2023 chapter.

He said: “Of course we are very happy with the trophy and very happy with the performance but it’s time to try to get some results in the Premier League.

“First, we have to focus on the games left this month as it is going to be a very tough month with Everton, then Sheffield United and then Huddersfield in the FA Cup.

“Now we are really focused on the domestic competitions – especially the Premier League as we are not in a very good position.

“We can think about Copenhagen in the Champions League later on as we have some tough, tough games coming up.”
